LADO SARAI BUS TERMINAL
BUILT UP AREA:
New Delhi, India
2018 - Ongoing
Lado Sarai village, close to Mehrauli, is an urban village which has in the past decade become incubator of experimental art galleries, furniture shops, and design studios. There is an existing bus terminal in Lado Sarai, but it is not properly planned neither does it have modern amenities. This bus terminal complex lies along the Kalka Das Marg and in proximity to a monument. It thus can provide last-mile and long-distance connectivity in this area.
The bus bays themselves are placed in a saw-tooth layout, fitting in 10 bus bays in the plot. Shops and allied services are provided at the periphery of the bus terminal complex. Passengers are provided with ample seating, drinking water, toilets, inquiry counters, and ticket booths. There are office spaces for the staff. Water ATMs, money ATMs, information desks, food and beverage stalls are provided at convenient locations.
To ensure that all citizens can use this public space, we have ensured barrier-free universal access by providing ramps with comfortable slopes. Resource minimalization guided our design decisions and so Landscape and storm water management are crucial elements of our proposal.
